prosecutor plays a role along with the defense in making recommendations to the jury -- to the judge with respect to the jury charge. and to the extent this charge could have been presented in a more plain and understandable fashion, the entire system bears responsibility for that. >> thanks to my legal panel. coming up, juror b29 said zimmerman got away with murder. now calls to change the stand your ground law are getting louder. >>> plus, why attorney general eric holder may be bringing his voting rights fight to north carolina. and bill o'reilly and the right continued the desperate push to change the conversation on race from rap music to chicago violence to preaching about the black family, anything but race. >> the reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the african-american family. >> i'll show you what is behind the desperation. >>> and friend or foe, i want to know. e-mail me at reply al. it's coming up. i'm a careful investor. when you do what i do, you think about risk. i don't like the ups and downs of the market, but i can't

seema iyer and joy reid, managing editor of, and criminal defense attorney ken padowitz. thank you all for joining me. >> great to be here. >> thank you. >> joy, what is your reaction to hearing that this juror says, quote, george zimmerman got away with murder? >> you know, i think, first of all, it's finally a relief to find out that really there were no blacks on the jury. there was a matter of contention. we know now this was the juror who initially wanted to charge second-degree murder. so in her mind, this was a murder, it wasn't a killing. but you have all of these dynamics. and seema can probably talk more about this than i can. you have only six people, six women, the group think and the pressure that had to be on this juror to go all the way from second-degree murder, and as she said, to fight to the end for that idea, to have two other jurors who wanted manslaughter and three jurors who wanted to acquit when they took that first vote according to b37, the other juror. so the idea that you took three people who thought that this was a murder or at least a crime

this. >> do you think the president now with this campaign trying to put on the defensive? >> i'm not going to speak for what the president is doing or why he's doing it. if i had poll numbers as low as his, i'd probably be out doing the same thing. >> i actually broke out laughing out loud. has boehner seen his poll numbers lately and the poll numbers for congress? the president is at 48% positive rating. boehner's at 18%. i mean, i don't know if he was joking or delirious, jonathan. >> me either. but it begs the question so why isn't speaker boehner out there touting a jobs plan? touting an alternative to obama care which he keeps allowing to go to the floor to be repealed for it to go nowhere. i mean, speaker boehner -- poor, speaker boehner. he's in a tough position. we all know why. i think the president is right to try to go around congress. and in fact, let's keep something in mind. the president has tried to work with republicans and work with congress since he walked into the white house especially since the democrats lost the house to the detriment of his base. the base was

all, to have a more inclusive system of indigent defense. a number of things have to happen. but it takes people being on the streets. not nonviolent street heat i should say. >> and at the same time, we are all for correcting people, and we do in terms of their personal behavior and family and all that. but that does not justify dealing with the unequal system in terms of the justice system and other things, whether you're well-behaved or not, whether your family is correct or not, we see the plight based on a racial inequality. >> well, yes. i would say certainly, unfortunately, that is where we still are. >> right. >> we're a much better nation. we got to move to higher ground. we have to operate at an optimum level. we're not operating at the level that we need to as a society. and certainly even in our own community, there are things we must do. so i think the responsibilities with the government and within our own households. >> you know yesterday president obama met with some of news the civil rights leadership to discuss the supreme court ruling on the voting rights act. whi
